Snowy egrets are lovely white birds with wispy end feathers. They have long black legs and a yellow beak. They´re found across the southern US.

Embeden White Goose
The Embeden is the classic white goose that you find on lakes and at farms. Tracing back to Britain in the early 1800s, it quickly became the goose of choice.

English Moorhen
One of my favorite bird sightings in Canterbury, England was of the moorhen - a type of gallinule. Moorhens are found mostly in southern England, by water.

Emu
An Emu stands 6' tall and can be a fierce defender of its territory.
